I swear I wouldn’t need a calendar to know when the Easter holidays were approaching. Not for the less than subtle increase in colourful eggs you see strewn all over shops or the sudden rise in the number of furry bunny posters smiling, winking and enticing you to increase your chocolate intake above the recommended daily dosage. No sir, not that. What gives it away for me is this sudden pain I get in my left knee. Seriously! You see, I once ran the Two Oceans marathon. Not the baby version. You know the one that is so popular that it inexplicably ends after twenty one kilometres? No, no. I’m talking about the big one.
