Oar Walking #dare

Ever wondered how to move fast from one end of a fully manned Viking ship to the other?

Here’s how!

See, nothing to it. Good balance – and perhaps a tiny bit of practice – is all you need. Probably also helps if you can swim and aren’t afraid to get wet.

Now, here’s a dare for you: Balance like a true Viking.

No, no, you don’t have to run from oar to oar off the side of a longship. I mean, who has a longship handy?

Find something to test you in a similar way. It could be a felled tree that you run along on, or the back of park bench. I’m sure you get the idea.
Go on! I dare you 🙂
