You don't have to skip Houston.  Go and have fun with it.  Use it as a long slow training run.  It might do you a lot of good to experience a race in a different way.

One of my favorite races was one where my buddy just wasn't feeling it and told me he needed my help.  We were at about mile 18 and I could have killed my PR.  But we went on the trip together so we were running together.  He is a great runner but had a horrible day.  I ran a lot slower that I could have but stayed with him.

Easily the best time I have ever had in a race.  4:08 later we crossed the line and he puked.  I haven't stopped making fun of him for that.
