I have been thinking about the disconnection between mind and body quite a bit as I try and mend my knee while still training for an upcoming marathon. It feels like the body is ultimately always the "winner" My mind and heart are ready to run and my body is saying no.
Thinking about this mind vs. body stuffs got me thinking about my last drink nearly eight years ago and how it wasn't actually a conscious last drink. It was my last drink because my body had literally stopped allowing liquor to go down my esophagus, not matter how much my mind begged for the relief that came from a drink. Just another time the body made a choice for me.
