Claudia Lane can be seen dramatically falling off the track at about 1:59 of the race, just entering the first curve after the 600m mark. Those with subscriptions can watch it here:
She was supposed to double back in Sunday's 2 mile, but the announcer said that minor injuries caused her to scratch. Maybe IT band issues. It is discussed prior to the start of the race, around the 1:00 mark, here:
She crashed out after a few laps, she was losing ground fast band didn't look like she should be in the race...maybe fatigue caused her to hit the rail or the fact it was her first indoor meet but it wasn't going to be a good ending anyway and no way was she ready to go 16 laps on Saturday....hopefully she keeps working on getting back to some better form... I thought it was odd she came all the way across the country for this meet,...her future is bright, she is attending dartmouth

It's odd someone would think toughness has anything to do with being physically unable to run. She sat out for ten months with an injury and still found her way back to a starting line. That's real "toughness and tenacity". Get your heads out of your asses.
