JLo to run for kids

LOS ANGELES: Actress and singer Jennifer Lopez is looking to add the title of athlete behind her na-me. The mother of twins revealed she plans to complete the Malibu triathlon, just six mon-ths after giving birth.

Lopez told Good Morning America that a triple goal motivated her to take on the challenge — raising money for the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, losing weight and make her children proud.

“It came up when I was eight months pregnant... beached like a whale,” she said. “I was watching TV, and I saw a triathlon, and I said, ‘I think I could do that.’ ... Maybe we could raise some money and do something really great.”

Lopez said she trains on a treadmill and stationary bike for about 90 minutes a day, while husband Marc Anthony looks after the kids. Lopez acknowledged the race will be difficult but had no doubt she would complete it. “If I have to crawl across that finish line, then I will crawl across that finish line,” she joked. “It’s for the kids.”
