NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- The team who works together worked together on Sunday on the streets of New York City.
"We are hardly ever in one place at one time," said Jonathan Karl, ABC News Anchor/Correspondent.
"I ended up being tasked with the person to get people to join and that was not difficult at all," said Linsey Davis, ABC News Anchor.
They are the very eager, elated eleven members of ABC News who are serious about their latest assignment.
"I know we're not supposed to be competing, but let's be honest, we are all competitive, we're all competing," said Deborah Roberts, ABC News Anchor. "I don't want to be the slow one."
They are completing the 26.2-mile TCS New York City Marathon as one, a relay team, with each person running two to three miles.
Robin Roberts started in Staten Island, and handed off to Will Reeve. Ginger Zee waited for him, so that she could pass the baton to Rebecca Jarvis, next up, network president Kim Godwin, executive producer Simone Swink, DeMarco Morgan, Linsey Davis - this is her second time running this race.
Kemberly Richardson caught up with Zee as she embraced Jarvis ahead of her leg of the race.
"If you are not pumped up, the crowd naturally gets you there," Davis said.
Davis will meet up with, Jonathan Karl, and his daughter will also be out there.
"The idea is to run into Emily after she's run about 24 miles and I've run only about 2, that's about even," Karl said.
He will come face-to-face with Deborah Roberts.
"I want to make sure my time is good, make sure I'm handing off that baton in a short period of time," Deborah Roberts said.
She hands it off to Anchor David Muir, who will bring it home in Central Park.
The first ABC News Relay was back in 2015.
So, as they make their triumphant return, things just wouldn't be right without a whole lot of smack-talking from this seasoned group of journalists.
"Here's the issue, Linsey Davis is just too damn fast," Karl said.
"Will Reeves said he wants to be the fastest and when he does that, he kind of puts a target on his back," Davis said.
"Robin Roberts, you know is very competitive," Deborah Roberts said.
"My little segment of the relay, it's going to be a piece of cake," Davis said.
"The person I really want to beat is Linsey, beating David Muir is fine, beating Robin," Karl said.
Let the games begin.
"So let's do it! Let's get ready!" Deborah Roberts said.
