Ron Carpenter is a physical therapist with Alpine Physical Therapy in Bend, Oregon.

Ron grew up in Leadville, Colorado at 10,000 feet elevation where he developed a love of skiing and distance running in the mountains. He went on to compete at the collegiate level at Adams State College that has a long tradition of National Championships in cross country running.
