I’m in Baltimore for the 2nd annual Heat it to Beat It walk!  I’m getting better at knowing where I’m going and using the light rail, a commuter train.  The walk is held in the center of Baltimore, the Inner Harbor, but hotels there are very expensive, so I stay near the airport in a nice hotel that is 1/4-1/5 of the cost of an Inner Harbor hotel ad use public transportation to commute.  Only $3.50 buys you an all day pass to use all of the trains and buses…can’t beat that ($40-$50 one way commute to the harbor via cab).  After walking miles downtown today, I attended a very nice and well-attended reception for the walk at Mercy Medical Center tonight.  I got to meet some other great survivors!  One is an 11 year survivor.  She also initially received a terminal diagnosis, and after her first HIPEC surgery it recurred three years later…and she received a second terminal diagnosis.  She had a second HIPEC surgery 7 years ago and has since been cancer-free.  The walk is tomorrow, and so far 671 signed up prior on-line, more signed up tonight at the reception. Will let you know the grand total when I know!  I will post pictures of the walk when I return home (forgot my card reader).
