Something I do when I run in cold weather is where a hankerchief (spelling? haha) around my neck and have it tied so it goes over my mouth. It helps take the sting away. Maybe you would want to try that?

Running does get effected with cold weather. It does help to have something cover your mouth so that you don't inhale that cold air. I use a "turtle" which you pull over your head down to neck....keeps neck warm and then you can pull it up over mouth and nose. Sporting goods stores should carry them. One of my best investments!

Having something over your mouth that will help keep the moisture in and warm the air somewhat will help. The best conditioning for running in cold weather would be walking briskly in cold weather. Usually it starts really hurting when you get winded. So take your heart rate and breathing right up to the top end of where you feel comfortable without crossing that line.

In line with everyone else's suggestions, these are the types of products I usually use because I have the same problem now that it's gotten colder. One type of product that is good to use is a neck gaiter which protects your neck and mouth. I usually go for a full balaclava when I run, however, because it's particularly cold where I live, especially in the dead of winter.

I hope you find what you're looking for!
