Trouble starting

So I needed to run out at lunch today, drove for 5 min, ran into a store, came out, and my 2006 Nismo didn't want to start. I tried a few times, and it cranked, just wouldn't catch. After a couple minutes of trying, it finally started up. I'd chalk it up as a 1-off, but it did it about 3 weeks ago as well - short drive, quick stop, and wouldn't start backup. Anyone had these issues? Any thoughts on why or things to look for?

Is it the original battery? If it is, does the top of the battery appear damp, a sign of impending failure? Also if original, pop off the caps and make sure the fluid level is up to the bottom ring of the hole. Most likely the battery is going bad and the short trip didn't replace the power you used to start the motor originally. Nissan batteries are not maintenance free.
