I'm Randy Mouri and this blog is about my quest to be an official finisher in the Race Across AMerica (RAAM), the toughest endurance race in the world. It's over and I became an official solo finisher in 11 days, 1 hour and 13 minutes! We continue to raise money and awareness on behalf of Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia (Habitat NoVa). If you would like to make a donation to Habitat NoVa, please visit my page on Habitat’s site. Endless thanks to our sponsors and all the folks that have made such generous contributions. Team Mouri would not have been able to travel so comfortably, which certainly may have changed the outcome of the race.

That was a nice night's sleep.
Randy rode 2 time stations after a rest following the crossing of the Mississippi River. He rode well, strong, and quick. His social personality is continually coming out. Some are treating this as a race, he is treating it more like a brevet. Reportedly he had a good time with a 4 person team last night. When they changed riders, he would stop to talk to the rider that just finished his leg. Then he would catch up to the team rider, and continue the process.
