Celeste Corcoran took a huge step forward in her comeback from losing both her lower legs in the Boston Marathon bombing. Several steps, actually -- and they came in rapid succession.

On Tuesday, Corcoran ran for the first time since the April 15, 2013 attack.

The video below -- shared on Corcoran's Facebook support page -- shows her bounding across the room in her blade prosthetics, flanked by assistants. It's guaranteed to bring a lump to your throat and it might even get you off the couch today to go for a jog.

Last April, Corcoran was cheering near the marathon finish line with her daughter Sydney, who was also injured and nearly died from blood loss when her femoral artery was sliced by shrapnel.
