Question Answered: 

Hello,, lets start with the basics , even though your battery reads 12.5 volts , under a load it may fail. I would replace the battery , before i would go to the extent of replacing the starter , im not sure how you tested the battery, but if you hook a volt meter to the battery and then try to crank the engine , if the voltage drop is considerable , i would start there , make sure the connections are clean and tight. The starter is highly unlikely at this point , however is still a poss cause.
