(CNN) — You know when things don’t go your way, sometimes it’s best to just go take a walk. That’s what Hillary Clinton did after her election defeat.
Margot Gerster spotted the former democratic presidential nominee near her New York home while hiking Thursday.
“It was completely by chance and kind of amazing. I mean I literally hike that trail almost everyday,” Gerster told CNN. “So this is sorta incredible to randomly run into Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton two days after the election.”
This is the first time Clinton has been seen since she conceded the election to Donald Trump Wednesday.
Gerster posted a picture of the meeting, hoping it would make some of Clinton’s disappointed supporters smile.
“She was very gracious and she hugged me and should couldn’t have been any nicer,” Gerster said. She was very warm and you know she asked me about my daughter obviously and where I was from and it was just very pleasant. Nothing, nothing too serious, she was taking a nice peaceful walk through the woods, I don’t think she wanted to talk serious politics.”
She told Clinton that she was proud to vote for her in the election.
Clinton then gave her a hug and offered her gratitude.
