Have you ever seen a bug this big before?

I go on a lot of walks/hikes and seeing bugs has never really bothered me. I'm always that person in the room who will get rid of them when nobody wants to and I always try to just let them be and do their thing. I was on a walk the other night and I had to stop for a second to answer an e-mail and it just shows you that you should not be working and walking at the same time.

I answered the email, felt something funny on my foot and all of a sudden saw this HUGE bug go across my shoe. When I mean HUGE I mean it was the width of four quarters side by side and I have never seen a bug this big before. It stopped me in my tracks and I couldn't help but stare at it for a while. I kept thinking what kind of bug is this? The bug is pictured below and you might know more about it compared to me. I thought it was a beetle at first, but I have never seen a beetle get even half of that size. In fact, I have never seen any bug that size before. It was like a bug on steroids was roaming around and I've been having a hard time figuring out what kind it is.
