Jennifer Lopez first thought about competing in a triathlon when she was 8 months pregnant with her twins Emme and Max.  She declared that she would begin training after their birth as a way to make them proud of her.  They are now 6 months old and she is walking the talk by participating in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon - a weekend fund raising event that partners with Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

Cash prizes of $40,000 are awarded in the Elite competition.  The two day Zuma Beach event bills itself as a 1/2 mile swim, 18 mile ride, 4 mile run - all for one great cause.  The celebrity event on Sunday features male and female teams that competed for bragging rights and raised $127,000 for charity.  The celebrity competition was not nearly as rigorous as the main event but it was definitely for a good cause.

Among those competing in the celebrity charity event, dubbed the Entertainment Industry Challenge, were Jamie Lee Curtis, Felicity Huffman and her husband William H. Macy.

Lopez, 39, participated in the 'sprint' triathlon in 2 hours 23 minutes and 38.8 seconds.  Actor Matthew McConaughey finished the 'sprint' category in 1 hour 30 minutes and 44.7 seconds.  This category is usually a swim of 1/2 mile, bike distance of 12.4 miles and a 3.1 mile run.
