Jennifer Lopez

Just call her superwoman. For the last two days or so, Jennifer Lopez has had to take a timeout from her training for this weekend's Nautica Malibu Triathlon because of an ankle injury, but that's not stopping her from doing the race.

"She had a slight injury," Lopez's rep tells me, adding, "She will definitely be doing the triathlon. She does not want to let down her charity and all the people who have supported her."

However, she will be skipping out as celebrity judge at today's taping of the Project Runway finale. Project Runway's very own Tim Gunn filled Lopez's shoes, making it the first time he's ever judged the designers. (Access Hollywood first reported Lopez's cancellation.) What's been the reaction? Well...

"Tim Gunn stepped in to the rescue and RUNWAY fans who've always dreamed of seeing Sir Tim judge are going to get their wish," Runway executive producer Andy Cohen blogged this morning at "It was a great morning."

Now, back to the triathlon, which benefits Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

Lopez has been blogging about her efforts on Self magazine's website. "Working out and getting back into shape isn't exciting to me but training for a triathlon is," she has said. "There's a goal at the end of it, something to reach for."
