Ideal as a second PC for experimental software and web design purposes without altering my main home computer. Also to be used as a Linux-based computer.
Running with the Kenyans: Discovering the secrets &hellip by Adharanand Finn

As one who 'ran with the Kenyans' in the early 60's, I found this book fascinating and a superb read. Those with whom I spent months training at altitude (West Pokot) were from a number of tribes attending the local government school (Chewoyet School, Kapenguria), but the fastest were the Kipsigis who ran, even then, with head thrown back - and barefooted. A technique I followed when running later in life as a cadet in the RAF, but not to such success as 'Finn'.
Well recommended for any runner - past, present or future.
