Yes a load test is a good idea.
However, you are partly saying what I was getting at. Would a voltage lower then 12.5~12.6, which is normal for a good 12 volt battery effect the ability of the car to start. Again everything else worked correctly. The engine did crank over, it just didn't start. That is why I am wondering if starting it twice and only letting it run for maybe 5 minutes total would ahve caused a lower then normal charge on the battery and therefore a starting problem.
I checked the voltage across the battery while running and it was 15 volts. So the alternator is charging correctly. Also it hasn't had an issue starting at all for the rest of today.
