Well that's quite a long jump, I wouldn't really recommend trying to upgrade. I'd suggest just saving data in your /home and reinstalling from scratch. If you want to you can "upgrade" without any media at all, just install the new fedora-release rpm and then a yum update will upgrade all relevant packages, but again it's a big jump, and fedora is not designed for long term use, more developer experiments and the likes.

Code:
 dd if=<F13.iso> of=/dev/<pen-drive-device> bs=4M
Uuse the proper name for the F13 iso file and the proper device for the pen drive. You won't have a persistent storage file on the pen drive, but since you're just using it for the installation, that won't matter.
