If you're heading outside for an early morning run, it's pretty nippy out there! A tank top and shorts just won't cut it anymore, but it's not quite cold enough for winter running gear.

Ahead are some of our favorite long-sleeve shirts to wear when the temps begin to drop. If you get really cold, pair these layers with your favorite vest or windbreaker.

Ultra-soft, lightweight, and quick-drying, this simple Under Armour Women's UA Tech™ 1/2 Zip [2] ($45) is made of UA Tech™ fabric.

The fabric feels smooth and dry next to your skin while the lightweight thickness provides enough warmth for cool weather. If you tend to overheat on runs, you'll love the 1/2 zip feature. It comes in three colors: black, grey, and pink.

New Balance Heat Grid Hoodie

This NB Heat Grid Hoodie [6] ($45) is perfect for running, with a fit that isn't too tight to constrict your movement. It features a hood for extra-chilly runs, and a front kangaroo pocket to hold things like tissues or your phone. Plus it has mitts and cuffs on the sleeves keep your hands warm.
