How to stop Zap from running once I update Google Calendar?

I have a Zap that creates a Google Calendar item from an Evernote note with a certain tag. When I edit the Google Calendar record, I pay change the calendar, subject, and other details. However, the Zap runs again and adds the calendar invite again. Is there a function to add where I can tell Zapier to only send it once?

Best place to troubleshoot is the Zap Runs:

You you filter/search results.

I was hoping that if I left the tag in the subject line of the calendar invite, regardless if I change the calendar, invitees (which I do not show here), that it would not create another calendar record?
