I found this spider in my bedroom today and was quite shocked. It was about the size of a half dollar and super fast. I finally caught it and took this picture. I got bit by a brown recluse some years back so am now super paranoid. I know it's not a recluse but am curious as to what it is. Thanks!

Wolf spider - large ones can give a painful bite if you pick it up, but they are not dangerous.
