Meet Katy Koestner Esquivel

Katy Esquival

From my armchair as Race Director, I meet a lot of different types of people. Katy is one of those people you meet who has that “can-do”, determined attitude about her. This energy is contagious to those around her. She is the mom of a relatively new born, a wife, and a lawyer who has recently started her own practice. Somehow, she still finds time to train with Leapfrog Running and participates in lots of area events. Katy might not be setting any course records out there but her sheer will lets you know, if you set your mind to something, you can achieve great things. Much more than you ever thought was possible. She carries this attitude with her in all that she does.

Katy and Baby

Katy always has a huge smile, a huge heart and a huge love for the Gobble Gobble Four Miler™. One of the things that first attracted Katy to the Gobble Gobble was the non-intimidating nature of the event. It really has something for everyone, at every level. Some walk, some jog, some race, there’s a one mile and a kid’s event. It is the perfect event for a families and anyone who just wants to try running an event for the first time. Those of you who have never run or walked in an event should consider starting a family tradition at Venetian Village this Thanksgiving. The memories will last a lifetime and you really couldn’t have a better backdrop than along the waterfront views of Gulfshore Blvd North.


Katy was also attracted to the less conventional 4 mile distance that helps work off just a few more calories on a day notorious for indulgence. Even better, do so while benefiting two worthy charities, St Matthew’s House and 95210 Kids on the Go. Katy has also started to push herself with training from Leapfrog running. The great instruction has kept her injury free and enjoying the Gobble experience.

If you want to make sure you enjoy it safely with a bit of training why not give Leapfrog Running a try too? Katy says, “Coach Matt Reedy can set a program specifically tailored for you to reach whatever goal you might want to achieve.” You can visit the Leap Frog site by Clicking Here!
