The Gold Inferno Runs A 5K

Right before the LA Marathon they held a 5K in downtown. A guy in a Mexican wrestling mask ran the three miles and his buddy filmed some of it.

After getting less than 1 hour of sleep and not having enough time to properly stretch before the event, Gold Inferno turned heads as he ran through the streets of Los Angeles. Wearing the mask not only made it hot, but also ensured that Gold Inferno could not drink any water. Throughout the race, several spectators and runners were intrigued by Gold Inferno. They shouted terms such as "Power Ranger" and "Luchador". He even spoke on his mobile phone while running. - YouTube

Congrats, Gold Inferno!
