That sounds about right too me, as long as the pedal is firm and not soft that adjustment sounds good. If you really want it closer there is an adjuster on the brake pedal arm up under the dash that might pull it up another halve an inch on the push rod, but don't go too much as you risk brake lockup when the fluid get hot.
