The world today is enough to make some people want to get up and just run to the ends of the Earth, so that's what Kai Markus decided to do.Nine months, eight countries, 12,000 kilometers and two fractured heel bones later, Markus hobbled across a symbolic finish line in Shanghai Saturday with a feeling of mission accomplished.Markus, whose wife is Chinese, could find no one who had run the route from sea to sea.Markus set out in March followed by friend Victor Neubauer, who drove a black 1984 Volkswagen Beetle towing a camper-van stuffed with protein powder, thousands of nutritional supplement pills and other supplies.Then, in late September, a freak stumble while running in China's central Hubei province broke both of Markus' heel bones.
