My original story was supposed to be about the Eugene Montessori School but I haven’t been able to find a subject for my story so I’ve decided to look for a different story. I went to Eugene Running Company on Monday and talked to the owners about running groups and then I went back today hoping to find someone who could be the subject of my story. I started talking to Bob Coll the owner of the Running Co. and he suggested that I get a hold of Jerry Stromme who volunteered to be the subject of enterprise story. I will be meeting with Stromme on Saturday to discuss the story and where I plan on taking it.
I plan on doing a 4 part story with Jerry Stromme, one part will be feature style article about Jerry Stromme and his pursuit of marathons, the second part will be a profile on Stromme, the third part will be a story on the Eugene Running Company and their strive to keep the local running scene alive. The fourth part will be a multimedia piece on marathon training and how Stromme decided to get off the couch and do something active.
