Yuor ignition switch has a dead spot on it, my 91 had the same problem, if you keep the switch from going all of the way back to the run position the car should remain running just make sure it is backed off enough to disengage the starter. It is possible to repair the switch by cleaning the contacts but foor about $100.00 you can get a new switch and replace it in less then 2 hours.

This could be a problem with your ignition switch. I have replaced a few for this very problem. http://repairpal.com/directory?address=98292&car_brand_names=Honda
