A Texas man just finished the run of his life.

Don Muchow, 59, had a mission to run 2,830 miles from Disneyland in California all the way to Disney World in Florida. It's a trip he just finished Wednesday.  And he's the first person to ever do it.

Muchow has been an insulin-dependent diabetic for the last 48 years. He says this is just proof that Type 1 diabetes shouldn't keep you from living your life.

He's also an Ironman triathlete.

Muchow started the run in February of last year. He ran the equivalent of more than a marathon every day to make the trip and would take a break every 10 days.

He also says that he went through 7 or 8 pairs of running shoes during his marathon.​

Muchow shared images and video from his momentous journey.

"First person to ever run from Disneyland to Walt Disney World!" read the Facebook caption. "Minds officially blown."
