While you're injured I'd drop any thoughts of going for a time. Get back running injury free, see how your training goes after that and base a time goal off your training closer to the race.
As you say there are plenty other races to go for a specific time.
Sarah - The the medals tend to use the same design, but the marathon medal is larger.
Kenno - Good luck! Fingers crossed it something easily sorted.
RunBaz - Welcome to the forum.
RR - I'm sure the stamina will return quickly. I always feel the first few long runs after a bit of a break always seem really tough, but then you start to get back into the way of it.
