Nikki Reed wants to become a ''better runner'' in 2013.

The 'Twilight Saga' actress and her husband Paul McDonald completed a half marathon earlier this month and have now set their sights on competing in more endurance races.

She said: ''I want to become a better runner. We chose to run our first half marathon in December and now we have lined up five for 2013.''

Nikki is very excited about the turning of the year, because so many of her projects will come to fruition in 2013.

She told ''I shot four really cool movies this year and I am so excited to see what comes of them. I am also excited to expand my music and my jewellery line with Pascal Mouawad because those are two projects that are very close to my heart.''

And the 24-year-old brunette - who has also been working on music with her husband this year - hopes to branch out with her career even more by writing a film and a novel.

She said: ''I am constantly writing. I write monthly on my blog, and have several screenplay ideas in my head. Hopefully I can execute one once I can focus and give all of my attention to my writing. I also love the idea of someday writing a book!''
