ERIN Lydon is taking the leap into the world of the Launceston Ten.
The 25-year-old West Launceston woman is competing in the event's flagship race for the first time this year.
Miss Lydon said her workplace was participating in the June 15 event, an opportunity that she just could not pass up.
``I thought it was a good chance to do it,'' she said.
Miss Lydon said she had not set herself a strict time-frame in which to finish the event.
`` I was hoping under an hour but whether or not that happens is another question,'' she said.
``It's just always something I've wanted to do, something to tick off my bucket list.''
In the lead-up to the Launceston Ten, The Examiner is running an online training program with personal trainer Kate Pedley.
Each Monday, The Examiner will upload that week's training schedule to examiner.com.au, as well as profile a Launceston Ten entrant.
