JLO's Blog Day 4

When SELF editor-in-chief Lucy Danziger trained with Jennifer Lopez for their upcoming triathlon, Jennifer's natural athleticism shined. (But anyone who has seen her dance could probably have guessed she's a great athlete. Her moves take serious coordination and fitness skills.) That trait helps during a race, but the physical aspect is only part of the story. You also need mental prowess, and Jennifer's seems to be in as good a shape as her body.

"With all the different legs, I'm a little slow when I start, then I gradually pick up the pace. I start feeling good and as I'm thinking, I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine, I get faster. Not fast like I'm going to break a record time, but like, OK, I'm stronger now. I can do this, I can do this, I can do this.

"There's a hill at the end of my usual bike course. For about a mile, it's all uphill. The first time I saw it, I thought it didn't look too bad. But when you're on a bike, pedaling after seven miles, it's hard! What's most surprising to me, though, is how much the body can accomplish. Your mind just needs to tell your body it can; your body can take it. I'm always surprised at how much I can do."

We love her determination. A can-do attitude will help you reach your goals, whatever they may be. Jennifer's, aside from crossing the finish line: Raise as much money as she can for Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. If you can help, click the "donate" link below.
