Taking New Steps

In 2014, Spanish elite ultra-runner, Luis Alberto Hernando, made the decision to pull out of the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB), a decision he attests to being ashamed of. His shame and frustration was elevated when he awoke after a few hours of sleep to see the second half of the field still struggling forwards to the finish line; determined, exhausted and committed. Inspired by their will to finish, he vowed to himself that he would come back to finish the full 103mi (166km) distance, no matter what. Nuevos Pasos is a short movie by Francois and Maxime Tornier,…
