    Speaking of sprints in winter, I do the occasional 100 meter dash while I'm walking to the store or something, but at this time of year it's well below -20 C every day so I wear a muffler. On one hand, it's hard to take in enough air through the thick material while sprinting. On the other hand, I don't know if deep, rapid breathing of air that cold is such a good idea.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    I live in Anchorage. When it gets below 10 I wear a thin balaclava that covers my mouth. I use it cross country skiing and sprinting. Easy to breathe through and no cold air/lung issues. Without it I end up with a cough. I sprint on the street I live on. It is snow covered and icy. Usually use Nike Frees but if really icy I use Ice Bug running shoes which have snow tire studs imbedded in the soles. Feels like you are zippered to the ground.

    I applaud your cold-sprinting efforts. One of my goals for the next few months is to not go more than two weeks without going outside for a sprint no matter how cold it gets.
