Thunder general manager Sam Presti was up late Saturday night for his team's thrilling 99-98 win over Dallas in Game 1 of their NBA Playoff series.
Sunday morning, Presti stood in the rain, handing out medals to Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon finishers.
“It was a little bit early, but well worth it,” Presti said. “I wouldn't miss it for the world because I know how much hard work has been put in by the people who run the marathon, and the people who put it on. The least I could do is be here to support it.”
Presti is a first-year member of the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum's Board of Trustees, and said volunteering at the marathon was “humbling” for him.
“To see the looks on their faces, it's just pure exhilaration and achievement,” Presti said. “I think everybody that runs the race understands there's a purpose for it, and what it means for the city.”
FINISHING WITH THE FLAG
One relay team of future military men finished Sunday's marathon by honoring the country they plan to serve.
