NOW you are full of chocolate and, er, more chocolate, it might be time to start thinking about burning off some calories.

Just when you've considered a diet to get rid of the excesses of Christmas, Easter comes along and compounds the problem.

If you can hang on for a bit there could be an answer. The annual East Cambs half-marathon will be staged again on Sunday, May 21. It's called the East Cambs Half-Marathon but it is organised by, starts from and finishes at the Ross Peers Sports Centre, so, apart from a brief jog through Wicken, it's the Soham half-marathon.

So there you are, you can finish that third egg with a clear conscience, thinking about a half-marathon is sure to stop the extra inches in their tracks. If you would actually like to have a go call the sports centre on 01353 722662.

I'll be the one waving from the side of the road with chocolate all round his mouth.
