Jesús España, 5 kilometers on fire at 2:47 two years after retiring
Who had, retained. Talent is innate, it is not lost. Whoever sows winds, gathers storms (in agreement, this last one is with shoehorn and it does not come to mind). The fact is that a good string of expressions and phrases are great for us illustrate the figure of Don Jesus Spain, one of the best Spanish marathoners in history who two years after retiring continues to be in top shape and running for pure pleasure, passion, vocation.
5k post confinement
Within the # Desafio5k2x1 of the Esteso brothers, Spain has been one of the first to hang up its activity (according to him, he got up to the horn, drank his coffee and started at around 8:30 am). Total: Five kilometers in 13: 59: 4. Or what is the same, 5,000 meters route at a rate of 2: 47 / km. To come from a confinement and to have been retired for two years, we can only take off our hats. “Circuit in slight descent and with a favorable wind largely because it was practically online. Conditions not homologated by the World Athletics ”, Spain has commented with irony.
Jesús, who will soon be 42, has personal marks 13:04:73 in the 5,000 on the track, 28:33 in the 10km route, 28:26:27 in the 10,000 on the track, 1:03:28 in the half marathon and 2:11:58 in the marathon.
