Not sure we can really tell you what you should focus on? what do you like doing best and concentrate most efforts on that is as far as I would go. everyone is different and far be it from us to tell you what you should be doing with your time!
If you're not sure of your goals then it's difficult to plan for them. Saying that I guess a training plan for that half marathon is a good start.
Unlike you I'm very over weight but much like you I'm more interested in deviding my time between different sports.
It's ok to be an all-around athlete, but if you're only running for 5km and training for a half marathon I think you need to concentrate if you want to get around in one piece! The other sports will definetely help with the fitness, but you will need to work on your endurance and on building the required strength needed for running - by running not in the gym. I would also get outside - training for a long race on a treadmill would bore even the hardened gym-goer rigid.
