I have seen these bugs several time outside and indoors over the last three years. Some larger than this one which is about an inch and a half long in body length. The legs and feelers are longer. Is it a member of the centipede family? They can really move if they feel threatened. What do you think? This one is in the bath tub.

The predatory House Centipede is a nocturnal hunter that has adapted to living in homes. Since House Centipedes are most active at night, they often go unnoticed, but once trapped in a bathtub where they cannot escape because of steep slippery sides, they make their presence known.
