I have just started running (I used to run on a tread mill many, many years ago).

I am having a hard time braving the elements. (alrhough I have been going). I am training for a few 5k that are taking place this winter.

Any suggestions on what to wear?

Yup, I run through slush and snowstorms, ice storms, high winds, icy roads...I run in all kinds of weather.

Yep, just dress warm and be careful, and there's no reason you can't run year-round :)

Anyone run throughout the winter?

Can't change the wind, but I can adjust my sails.
