Default 2009 RAV4 Soft Brake Pedal

Is this normal? 5100 miles, runs great, love it...problem maybe
normal to Toyota, but being my first RAV, brakes seem different.
Engine off, brake pedal , about 2 inches play and hard . Start engine,
pedal gets soft, and can go all the way to the floorboard. Brakes stop
very good true and straight. Even though they are soft , the brake
stop
the RAV, at about 1 inch, at very little pressure. Is that soft pedal
with engine on normal?

Iam wondering if that might be a hazard. In a PANIC stop, a big foot
like mine
might hit both pedals at the same time, and causing engine speed up.
I
don't want to sound like an idoit, but all my other vehicles had a
hard pedal and you knew the brakes were on. In other words, brake
pedal stopped before gas pedal might have been inadvertenly touched.
