Shannon Spake’s Stair-Running Skills


Shannon Spake is an excellent ESPN sideline reporter.  Last night, she proved that she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make sure the story is covered, even if it means climbing to the top of Rupp Arena in these shoes:



Apparently, it’s nothing new for her.  Spake actually has a stair-running routine.

“It was a fun moment,” said Spake, who regularly runs stadium and arena stairs at the sites of her assignements, a tradition she began last football season. “You don’t often times get to do things like that, but because of the score of the game, we took advantage of the opportunity.”

You can watch her perform the feat from last night’s game below, or read more about her stair-running hobby here, from ESPN Front Row.
