Walkers take refuge from winter weather inside Valley River Center mall in Eugene

    The weather outside is frightful, but the mall is so delightful ...

    EUGENE, Ore. - Finding the motivation to don parkas and rain jackets to head outside for a stroll can be hard to come by during the long dark winter months in Western Oregon.

    But over at the Valley River Center, a dedicated group of mall walkers think they've found the answer.

    Photojournalist Loren Ruark takes us along for the "stride" in this video story.

    The mall opens up at 6 a.m. for walkers.
