Retrieved from CBS.com
Lenny and Karyn were introduced by a mutual friend at a New York City basketball game in 1999. They've done some traveling together, and have found the experience "laid back and relaxing." They decided to team up for THE AMAZING RACE because they're both very competitive and they have complementary strengths: Karyn is aggressive, focused and very organized, while Lenny is patient and athletic.
