Yes I am planning on running the Utah valley marathon June 11 and no I am not planning buying a shoe and using it for that race. This is for other races.
Glad you brought that up! I always chuckle and feel bad at the same time for those that make this horrible error - as far as the shoes... I loved the Asics Ohana (now discontinued), but they replaced it with the Bandito which was more of a stability racer - which by your shoe choice shows that you are. (However, I just realized, I don't know if it is still around.)
