Why does my blood pressure drop after running? Is it weird for this to happen?

In brief: Blood pressure

When you run your blood vessels dilate and the heart pumps rapidly to push blood to the tissues.
When you stop running it is not unusual for pressure to drop while heart is slowing and vessels are readjusting.
