The theme made me think of brisk walking for some reason, and when I found STROLL, I realized I wasn’t that far off. Soon, I found MARCH, TREK and STRUT as well. However, after this, my mind was hit by a vocabulary block.

After quite a few minutes of searching I used the hint to get TRUDGE in the bottom right. Then, I found SAUNTER, and accidentally stumbled upon AMBLE as well. That made me find PEDESTRIAN as the left to right Spangram for the day. With that, I was done with today’s puzzle.
