Changed my goal to not race the Salt Lake City Half-marathon in April

I've enjoyed running a few races during the past two years, and I'd like to do more. However, I haven't enjoyed the constant pressure to train to run faster and faster. I've always run for the pure enjoyment of it, and I'd like to return to that style of running. So, my current goal is just to regain my ability to run 13 miles. No goals about upcoming races. I will get faster as I develop endurance, and depending on how I feel in the Spring, I may still run that half. I've been thinking about this for a number of weeks and decided last week to refocus myself to run for the pure enjoyment of it. I think I'm starting to relate more to John "the Penguin" Bingham :)
