The PACE Network

…is a community of experts that believe deeply in the language of movement and the power of athletics. Through shared intelligence we can collectively grow faster than any one of us can grow individually.

Dan graduated from the University of Iowa in 2003 with a BS in Exercise Science and then earned his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Iowa in 2005. Dan’s passion for physical therapy started from his interest in track and marathoning. His passion for physiology, training, coaching, and injury management led him to a career in physical therapy.

He serves as the physical therapist for the University of Oregon Track and Field team, coordinating with athletic trainers and coaches to ensure the health of athletes of all disciplines. His role with the University of Oregon involves frequent athlete assessments for injury prevention as well as treatment of injured athletes.

While in Iowa, Dan was introduced to David McHenry from PACE and the Nike Oregon Project.

Chris Ramsey, PT, DPT

• Current Position(s): Physical Therapist / Primary Contributor

• Company: Therapeutic Associates PACE

• What are your credentials/past experience, for working in your position: PT / DPT / OCS. Nearly 20 years as a PT. Worked with athletes of all levels, novice through Olympic Gold Medalists, across any number of sports (summer and winter sports) with a particular interest in runners, cyclists, and multisport athletes.

• What’s your background: Grew up as a runner, then progressed to triathlons in college after a brief rowing stint. Raced triathlons for over 20 years including 9x qualifier for the Ironman World Championships (IMWC) (qualifying every year I made the attempt from 1996 on). Started down the road of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2008. 3 of my IMWC qualifications (and 7 IM) came after that diagnosis. 18 Ironman total, with a PR of 9:10. Retired from triathlons in 2014, and moved into cycling (road and cyclocross). Completed the 930-mile Race Across the West as a solo rider in 2018, becoming the first athlete with MS to ever do so, while raising almost $90,000 across 2 years for the National MS Society to battle the disease. Got a mountain bike in 2018 as well, and who knows where that will take me? People who have impacted / inspired me: my father, who introduced me to running at age 2 (“ran” a mile in less than 20 minutes); Christian Bustos (Chilean triathlete – “Never give up”); my wife, Micha, and my son Mattias (who rode his first century – 100 miles – at age 9).

• What are the values that drive you: “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.” Keep the (fitness) bar high – the higher it is, the further it can fall before I’ll need that wheelchair. Happiness = Life – Expectations

• What do you enjoy doing when you are not working: Cycling of all types, take naps (thank you, MS), raise money to fight MS, skiing with the family in winter, backpacking with them in the summer.

• Favorite Quote: “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”  – Albert Einstein
