It is often said that politics is like a marathon and that those who run very fast risk being busted in the first few kilometers. That and all the unintelligent comparisons made with the lessons given by the great sports stars, as if ruling a country were like playing the final at Roland Garros or playing a soccer World Cup. Coaching, full of these similes, is the closest thing to the peddling of miracle remedies that appeared in the nineteenth century press. Even so, the candidate of Más Madrid in the elections, Mónica García, has shown in the last year that sometimes it is also convenient to run fast if the occasion demands it. That has caused a rather unusual situation in politics, where hierarchies are only slightly less rigid than in the Catholic Church.
