Brake pedal Long reach

Hello all, I have a 09 smart, where the brake pedal goes down about 4 inches before catching and stopping the car. Does not feel spongy. Any thoughts on the problem. I don't recall seeing this before

Just replaced the front pads/rotors at 33k. Noticed the brake pedal travel is more than before. Brakes work fine but I don't like all that pedal travel. Brake fluid is at the top mark.

I tried working and handbrake and service brake then backing the car up and down the driveway. At some point, the pedal travel was almost gone. But after sitting for a few minutes, the long travel returned.
