Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes run 2023 NYC Half Marathon after affair and ABC firing

For ABC anchors Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes, the NYC Half Marathon marks where it all began.

In November last year, it was revealed that the Good Morning America 3: What You Need To Know co-hosts had been having a months-long affair, which reportedly started when they began training for the NYC Half Marathon together.

Now, the pair have marked a year together, running in this year’s half marathon as a public couple.

Per reports, the pair took on a more low-flying profile at the event this year, with their names not being included in the celebrity list of runners that is shared in advance each year.

Holmes, 45, wore all black for the crisp day in the Big Apple, while Robach, 50, wore a white running jacket and blue leggings.

Last year, Robach, who is an experienced runner, revealed months before the event that she had been helping Holmes train for the mammoth race, which sees New Yorkers run 21km around the city.

“I think ‘Robes’ knew that this was a manageable distance for me,” Holmes told Page Six last March. “Then throw in a little public shaming, a little peer pressure, plus she took advantage of my pride and ego, and here we are… I’m running a half marathon!”

Robach added in the interview: “I pretty much announced to everyone that T.J. was going to run the half-marathon with me, and then publicly pressured him to join… and it worked!”

The pair were momentously taken off the air in December amid a network investigation into their outed relationship.

Just this week, Robach finalised her divorce from her partner, Melrose Place star Andrew Shue.

Per multiple outlets, Robach, 50, and Shue, 56, divided their assets amicably through mediation and agreed to share custody of their dog, Brody.

Robach and Shue’s legal split comes eight months after she filed for divorce to pursue her relationship with Holmes. They had been married for 12 years.

Meantime Holmes is currently in the process of settling his divorce from Marilee Fiebig, with whom he was married since 2010. Holmes and Fiebig share a 10-year-old daughter, Sabine.
