OWOSSO, Mich. -- Fifty years after graduating from Owosso High School, Lois Crawford isn't slowing down.

In fact, the 68-year-old, along with her husband Doug, is on the journey of her lifetime -- riding her bike from the couple's home in Baytown, Texas, to Sault Ste. Marie.

They plan to finish their approximately 2,350 mile journey just in time for Crawford's 50th high school reunion on Sept. 17.

"I'm probably in the best physical condition I've ever been in," Crawford said. "Everything I want to do in life requires some degree of physical fitness. I don't want to just sit around and play bridge."

The couple started off their ride July 10 in the driveway of the home. As of Monday morning, they were in northern Indiana. They expect to reach Lansing on Saturday, where the couple will spend some time with Doug's family before taking part in the Dick Allen Lansing to Mackinaw Bicycle Tour at the end of the month.
