The next day, she ran the two mile in 10:28.66, smashing a record she already held. She also ran about five seconds faster than the record for 13-year-olds, held by Jordan Hasay -- who is now a professional runner. Ping told Runner's World magazine, "Running’s not an easy sport. It’s a lot of fun to me and I really like it, but it doesn’t mean that it’s not hard."
Ping hopes to become a professional runner and compete in the Olympic Games. I think she's well on her way to doing just that!
Keep reaching for life's mileposts!
