    Particular clause in adverbial meaning

    Please advise which one is better for reflecting the meaning after changing its form to adverbial clause and the reason why this is your choice. Thanks.

    Per my opinion, I prefer the second one because it evinces the result of the action so as to caught up with her that the meaning is similar to the original sentence.

    Original Sentence: Because I was walking quickly, I soon caught up with her.

    A) Walking quickly, I soon caught up with her.
    B) Having walked quickly, I soon caught up with her.

    I don't see a difference between the meanings of the two.
