A wounded war Veteran who lost both legs in Afghanistan, ran 13.1 miles Saturday.
Lance Corporal Matias Ferreira was among the thousands who ran the Walt Disney World half-marathon in Florida.
The 22-year-old marine lost both legs one year ago, but he doesn't consider it a disability, just another challenge.
Ferreira is one of four "achilles international" freedom team members to run in the half-marathon.
Two others were also wounded in combat, and the other was diagnosed with breast cancer while serving in Afghanistan.
