While out for a walk with her children in Chappaqua, New York, Margot Gerster says she ran into an unlikely couple: Hillary and Bill Clinton out for a post-Election Day walk with their dog.
Gerster posted a photo and account of their surprise encounter on Facebook.
Gerster says she'd been feeling "so heartbroken since yesterday's election and decided what better way to relax than take my girls hiking." As she was leaving the hiking spot, she and her family ventured into a clearing where the Clintons happened to be walking.
"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," she wrote. "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," Gerster writes.
"She hugged me and thanked me and we exchanged some sweet pleasantries and then I let them continue their walk. Now, I'm not one for signs but I think ill definitely take this one. So proud. "

Bill even took the photo.
The Clintons have lived in Chappaqua, a town north of New York City, for almost 17 years. On Tuesday morning, Clinton cast a vote for herself in the town she and her husband have come to call home.
