  • FIU Law alumna Christy Lopez-Acevedo ’05 is a three-time Ironman! - Law
    work which is emotional and often times draining but has its rewards She ends her work well after 5 p m and then it s off for even more training When children come to us it means they have had a very tough life she said It s difficult to understand the abuse and neglect but when we are able to remove the bad elements from their lives and move them into a loving environment it makes it all worth it So how did the need to do something so extreme and challenging happen for Lopez Acevedo I picked up running a few years ago and entered my first half marathon she explained I quickly caught the bug and from there started training for short distance triathlons I found a coach and a team and before I knew it I signed up for my first full Ironman Her first Ironman race was June 2014 in Coeur d Alene Idaho The conditions were ideal for her to have a smooth race but at the start of the swim she was kicked in the side and had to brave through the next 15 hours with a bruised rib Once she heard the announcer call out Christy Lopez Acevedo you are an Ironman she knew she couldn t stop there Five short months later she was registered to tackle Ironman Florida in Pensacola and this past Sunday just eight months after Ironman Florida Lopez Acevedo headed up to the Adirondack Mountains in Lake Placid New York for her third competition in just over a year Lake Placid is recognized as the longest running longest running American event aside from the Ironman World Championship in Kailua Kona Hawaii The city has been host to two Olympic Games and is famous from its difficult climbs
