Suggestions for writing a case study using the SNACK/BITE/MEAL approach. By using this technique to build your paper it allows the paper to flow well.  Here is a brief example of this approach:

SNACK: a brief headline regarding your client: Laura sets a new personal best at Boston!

BITE: one or two sentences that summarize the content in this section:  Laura sets a new personal best at Boston, thanks to the pre-race checklist we developed and a balanced approach to fueling!

MEAL: a paragraph or two providing more detail for the seriously interested reader:  Laura sets a new personal best at Boston, thanks to the pre-race checklist we developed and a balanced approach to fueling! This was accomplished by zeroing in on these items during the six months leading up to the event. Two things really made the difference at Boston. Having a pre-race checklist, learning a relaxation technique, adding some protein and fat to the pre-race meal of pasta, and taking water every 30 minutes during the race
