Jennifer Lopez completed the Nautica Malibu Triathlon on Sunday, only seven months after the birth of her twins.
She said she was inspired to do the race when she was 8 months pregnant.
“I was watching TV, and I saw a triathlon and I said, ‘You know what? I think I could do that, that would be great for me to do. Maybe I’ll do it this year,'” she explained.
Her participation in the race raised $127,000 for the Children’s Hospital of L.A.
Below is the video clip of the segment she did with Good Morning America in August.
She talks about how it is such a challenge to find the time and motivation to train, (she says they do not have nannies) but the hard work has paid off. She now has much more energy and feels so much better overall.
Jennifer also jokes that she is going to finish the race, even if it means crawling across the finish line! Fortunately, she didn’t need to resort to crawling, she proudly finished with a great smile on her face.
I definitely have to give Jennifer Lopez credit here. She committed herself to this race just after giving birth and did not give up on her goal. I’m sure there were many mornings when she didn’t feel like getting up to train, but she took the time to make it happen.
Great job J. Lo! You are definitely “One Fit Mommy”!
