Animation keeps looping..(n00b, reportin' in)

Hey guys and gals.

I’m trying to set up a UI at begin play that pops up simple guiding instructions.

It’ll be like… “press shift to sprint”… it would be fading in holding for 2 seconds then fade out.

Great! I’ve got the animation setup in a UI widget and when I press play, it works flawlessly! I insert it into an event graph and hit play. The animation endlessly loops, needless to say… it’s a failure on my end.

I’m a complete newbie and have probably overlooked something, but this is really quite frustrating. attached are a few screenshots! Any help would be great.
