Workflow failed due to access denied when querying a list

One of the initial steps of my workflow is to query a list for some names and set them as variables I use later in the flow.  This is so that if those individuals change positions or leave the company, the content in the workflow can be adjusted appropriately without someone having to make changes to the workflow.


Recently one of my workflows failed and the error details said : 


Failed to query list data. Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))


This is not a permissions issue because I was able to start the workflow manually later.  I'm currently under the assumption that this was a momentary hiccup in Sharepoint where the list was unavailable. 


Anyone else run into this?
