I've started training for a half marathon while recovering from a broken ankle. At this point, I'm walking at 13.46 mpm. I normally cycle, so what sort of tools should I consider purchasing

Have you looked at the Proform 995 or any other machine that works with ifit? You can access google maps on it and actually map out the exact route you will be running...let's say that its around Central Park just for a hypothetical. You use your mouse or finger to draw that map on google maps then it will not only give you a street view as though you are running it when you are on the treadmill, but it will create the EXACT match of the topography on the map by automatically adjusting the incline as you run. For example, I mapped out a route right by my house which is by a very steep hill and not only passed by my house on the map but the incline adjusted so I was running the hill.

This would give you the advantage of training with the actual route you will be running.

Or you can just be silly and run the streets of Paris past the shops like I do to switch things up. :-)

But I don't know if you meant a big purchase like that.

If you have an iphone there are all kinds of great running apps as well; some of which are free if you just search them on the app store site.

I'm using the Nike+ GPS iPhone app. I don't have clearance to actually run yet, but have been walking close to 3 miles at a time. The latest treadmill technology sounds great, but that is more than I'm wanting to spend. I'm really looking for the basics I need to consider for training and participating in the event.
