"Heartbroken" supporter runs into Hillary Clinton on hike in the woods

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (CBS 8) - What do you do after finding out the candidate you voted for has lost the bitter fought presidential election? Go on a hike and then getting a surprise encounter with said candidate.

A New York woman with her baby daughter ran into Hillary and Bill Clinton hiking in Chappaqua Thursday morning.

Margot Gerster went for a walk after being "heartbroken" with the outcome of the election when she spotted the couple. Gerster briefly exchanged a few warm words with Hillary and then snapped a photo together.

Gerster posted the photo of the surprise encounter on her Facebook page (currently offline).

Gerster wrote on her Facebook post, “As we were leaving, I heard a bit of rustling coming towards me and as I stepped into the clearing there she was, Hillary Clinton and Bill with their dogs doing exactly the same thing as I was.”

“I got to hug her and talk to her and tell her that one of my most proudest moments as a mother was taking Phoebe with me to vote for her,” she said. “She hugged me and thanked me and we exchanged some sweet pleasantries and then I let them continue their walk.”

The Clintons own a home in Chappaqua, which is about 40 miles north of New York City.
