Coach T

“I’ll make you work hard. I’ll make you have fun. And I’ll be cheering you on from the sidelines every step of the way.” — Coach T

Taneen Carvell is an accomplished athlete.  After running her first 5K at the age of 32— a self-proclaimed “late bloomer” — she immediately signed up for her first marathon.  She has since qualified for the Boston Marathon 16 times and competed in her first Ironman Triathlon at age 40. In total, she has completed 23 marathons and 8 Ironman triathlons, in the 18 years since her very first race.

Taneen has taken her love of running and endurance sports and turned it into a love of inspiring and coaching others, helping more than 400 athletes to their marathon finish line, over 40 Boston Marathon qualifying victories, and 71 triathletes conquer the Ironman distance with confidence and rewarding success. Taneen’s vast experience in running and endurance training and competition, and her continued quest for athletic achievement give her personal experience on which to build the many training tips and techniques she teaches. But most of all she shows her trainees that you can have fun even when it’s hard, and through it all her support and belief in them will be there all the way to the finish line.


Taneen Carvell is a member of and certified by United States Track & Field (USATF) and is a member of USA Triathlon (USAT).  Below is the roster of distance races that serve in testament to her passion, experience, and accomplishments in the interest of running, triathlons, and related multi-sport adventures.
