In brief: Sprain
Patients usually remember a injury when they sprain their knee .
When there is no recall of injury it may be more of a mechanical issue such as improper shoes that create more grip or new activity such as dancing, also consider the surface in which one may be running on or a tendinitis due to overuse.
