T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach were spotted bracing the cold to make their way to the starting line to run the New York City Half Marathon together this morning.
In photos seen exclusively by the DailyMail.com, Holmes, 45, and Robach, 50, were dressed head to toe in Lycra and looked chilly as they made their way to Prospect Park in Brooklyn to work up a sweat.
Their second half in two years, the run is as the ex-anchors’ first since news of their affair lost them their jobs last year – and comes on the heels or reports that they planned to run the event whilst incognito.
Their affair, exposed by DailyMail.com in November, cost both their marriages and contracts at ABC, with each ending their tenure at GMA3 with severance pay-outs in January. The competitive couple has since struggled to keep a low profile – returning from a trip to Mexico in February where they reportedly packed on the PDA.
Since the trip, the pair have reportedly been preparing for the 13.1 mile event, held in Manhattan and Brooklyn, by keeping up their fitness with ‘intimate’ sex workouts that insiders revealed to DailyMail.com earlier have whipped them into the ‘best shape of their lives’.

Snappers deployed by DailyMail.com across the East River shortly before sunrise confirmed suspicions the couple were set to run the relatively under-the-radar event, which, pending any stragglers in its last wave, should be finished come noon.
The pair were dressed for the occasion – decked out in hats, gloves, and form-fitting athletic gear as temperatures hovered just below freezing, and joined roughly 25,000 runners said to be participating the event.
Notable names rumored to being joining the couple include retired Giants running back Tiki Barber, and reality TV stars Andi Dorfman and Peter Weber, who have yet to be photographed since the run’s first heat hit the pavement at 7am sharp.
The run begins in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park before taking off across the East River via the Manhattan Bridge, where runners, once in Manhattan, will race along the Lower East Side, through Midtown, and eventually finish in Central Park.
Like its more famous, full counterpart, the United Airlines NYC half marathon is held just once a year, and comes as a slight inconvenience to Sunday drivers as being one of the only occasions that fully shuts down Times Square.
That said, the run is far from a show-stopping event and is relatively unknown to most New Yorkers, garnering far less coverage than the city’s famed five-borough event – and attracting less than half as many runners.
It is this pseudo-obscurity that may have played part in Robach and Holmes’ decision to show up to the first wave of three separate groups of runners, whom were preceded by pro wheelchair and handcycle athletes.

The pair may have also used the trip to prepare for the 13.1 mile event being held in Manhattan and Brooklyn, keeping up their fitness with ‘intimate’ sex workouts that have whipped them into the ‘best shape of their lives’, insiders revealed to DailyMail.com this week
The couple, for the most part, seemed to avoid media scrutiny – despite donning brilliantly bright, ultralight running shoes that served to show off their not-so-subtle nature.
Sporting warm beanies and and skintight long-johns, the pair were still snapped by DailyMail.com, however, as they head to the starting line – just days after an insider confided that the pair’s intense training regimen for the event consisted of calorie-burning sessions the covers, held behind closed doors.
‘T.J. and Amy have gone full circle,’ said one source of how the couple planned to run the event, feeling empowered now that news of their secret trysts are now well-known.
‘Their relationship blossomed into more than friendship when they were training for the half marathon last year,’ the insider explained.
‘And now, a year later, they are committed lovers set to prove their mettle in the race this weekend.’
A friend of the couple added: ‘They are in the best shape of their lives, and one reason is their very active sex life.’
They asked: ‘Are they into the Kama Sutra? I can’t say. But besides their intense training their private intimate workouts give them that extra added stamina.’
