1988 City to Surf Results

Does anyone know of a 'Ken' Sweeney who would have ran 45mins in 1988? 
If not, that was probably me, 41st and 45m19 as I cant see my name anywhere else and I definitely raced it in 1988.
Again these results are full of runners from the past and present some of who even read my blog, great to see you all and isn't it good your still running 22years later! 
Make you feel old??

Ken Sweeney is a Canberra runner who ran for Weston Creek Athletic Club. Yes, just ahead of Andrew Kirk and Garry Hand, on the day, looks about right.

I'm just looking at my yellowed copy of the 1989 results, where you're at 44th with 45:55.

I remember Ken Sweeney from Canberra marathons where he and my son Michael had a few battles.
Amazing that you two blokes should have finished so close in that C2S race.

Hey Guys thanks for your comments and thanks for confirming there is actually a Ken Sweeney, so the mystery of where I finished in 88 remains! Actually I had a feeling I did get 'chicked' by Lisa Martin in that race so I must have been further back. I also have this vague notion that a guy in our team jumbled up the numbers so I probably ran as someone else!

Just out of interest I note that Ken ran 2.29.28/2.27.43/2.29.07 in 1981/82/83 Canberra Marathons respectively.He was just around the 30 yrs of age at that time.Mike ran 2.29.33/2.28.05 in 1981/82 respectively.
Incidentally,is Speedy Geoff the Geoff Moore who ran 2.28.30 in the 1981 race?
