As a part of an early morning fitness class at the downtown YMCA a small group of people added a jog around a few of Syracuse’s city blocks. As their fitness improved, distance was added along with four city parks covering all the highest points in Syracuse. The two highest points are the water reservoirs in Woodland and Thornden Parks. Special t-shirts proclaimed the group, “Mountain Goats”.
