Jennifer Lopez Is Optimistic About Upcoming Tri

I recently told you about how Jennifer Lopez, coming off of only six months since having twins, is training for a triathlon next month.

Now, Self has crowned her the Most Inspiring Woman of 2008. And for good reason too; she's not trying to win the race but it's become a goal of hers since she was eight months pregnant. Something else I did not know is that she is also racing to raise money for the Children's Hospital Los Angeles! No pressure or anything. Sept. 14 is the big day for Jennifer and I'll certainly be cheering her on. To see an interview of Jennifer talking about her upcoming event, just


Here's more from an ABC interview:

I like Jennifer's views on goal setting — if you tell yourself you're going to do something then just do it. You may not be a Self cover girl and have the whole world watching to see if you succeed, but you can still hold yourself accountable for all your fitness goals. Joining a program such as Team in Training is a great way to add a little extra emphasis on reaching the finish line.

I've actually recently completed my first triathlon — yay! — and if you're like Jennifer and training for your first, you may want to take a look at some helpful tips that I learned about the actual day of the race.

Congrats to you Fit for accomplishing such an incredible task!!!! And I'm proud of Jennifer too because it's lovely to see strong and beautiful women and mothers in the public eye- sure, she just had twins but she's not starving herself and getting body crazy, she's stepping up to the plate by training for a freakin' triathlon. Very commendable.

Triathlons are really crowded, even the smaller events -- I hope her bodyguards don't get in everyone else's way! :P (triathlons are fabulous, congrats Fit! I'm competing in my first half ironman next month!)

I think that its great that she has set herself this goal - mine is to walk 10,000 steps a day. Some days I get there and others I don't (I work in an office so it can be hard), but I still try. I'll def be cheering her on!!

Yaaay! Congrats on completing that triathlon, Fit! I've always wanted to do one (*after I can cross off running a marathon off my list*) and this post is definitely inspiring. I didn't know JLo was running for charity...that's way cool!
