Ping, who recently started being coached by Tom "Tinman" Schwartz (Drew Hunter's coach) ran 16:44 and 10:28.
8 laps, 8 beers.
Mercy Cherono won the 2-mile in 9:48 while Allyson Felix lost to Candyce McGrone in the 150m by .04-seconds.
She just won over Destiny Collins who ran 10:00.90 for 2nd. Rohrer: "Breaking 10 minutes has been my No. 1 goal for this season. I went all the way across the country to get it. I’m so excited right now.”
Between her and her sister Wesley Frazier, they have 12 national tiles.
She used the lipstick in homage to her grandmother, who passed away in February 2011. She also said, "Races are pretty special occasions—I only race maybe 20 times a year—so I might as well get dressed up for them. When you decide to put a hot pink lipstick on, you better bring your A game."

Includes the recent WRs by Mo Farah, Genzebe Dibaba, Florence Kiplagat as well as Jenny Simpson's AR.
He said he hasn't ruled out going for Bekele's WRs at 5000/10,000, but Beijing Worlds are his focus.
Yes Farah had a rough marathon debut and then some health issues, but his track season has been a joke as he hasn't raced anyone.
Genzebe Dibaba ran 4:28 to beat Morgan Uceny's 4:29 in the mile. Mike Rodgers won the 100 in 9.91 as 38-year old Kim Collins set a NR with 9.96. Lots more good sprint/field action as well with Derek Drouin (HJ), Renaud Lavillenie (PV), Fabiana Murer (PV) winning over other big names.
Bernard Lagat has instead been added to the 2-mile in Farah's place.
She says she always dream of racing at Pre when she was in college, but Oregon coach Vin Lananna wouldn't let her. She also talks about how she ran a 57 quarter in a workout and that Alberto Salazar was more excited about that than anything she did last summer because it showed she actually could have closing speed.
Some insights into her training under Aden who says he thinks she's still in great shape and was expecting between 8:14-8:18 in Doha (she was 8:26). She's going for a 5000 PB at Rome DL on June 5th and then will attack the 2000 WR on June 17th in Ostrava.
She'll face Hiwot Ayalew who is undefeated in 2014, having cleaned up on the Euro XC circuit. Other distance highlights include Mohammed Aman in the 800, Hagos Gebrhiwet, Dejen Gebremeskel, Yenew Alamirew and Augustine Choge in the 3000 and Mekonnen Gebremehdin, Silas Kiplagat, Nixon Chelseba and Bethwell Birgen in the 1500m.
Plus photos of the women's mile with Mary Cain, Abbey D'Agostino and Jordan Hasay.
