Recent Rejects Did Crash Course At Gym Before ‘Amazing Race’

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – He may train year round for the New York marathon, but one Amazing Race loser says nothing could prepare him for the physical intensity of the show.

Tom, who was kicked off with his longtime partner Terry on Sunday (Oct. 9) says he’s run in five marathons, but that didn’t help him at all in upper strength challenges such as scaling a giant rock in the middle of the ocean in Vietnam.

As he puts it, “I was hoping for a road race but, unfortunately, we didn’t get that”

Terry admits he started pumping iron as soon as the two found out they had made the show – even though he only had three weeks to bulk up before they had to start filming.

Says Terry: “I thought we were both in pretty good shape but compared to some of the other teams we weren’t that in shape.”
