The distance is finite. Take the integral I posted and calculate the distance from the far away observers spherical shell (r) to (r=2M) and then calculate the distance from the observer at a spherical shell (r=2M) to far away observers spherical shell (r). Do this for any different spherical shells. The only difference is the sign and that only indicates radial direction. This integral tells you what the distance would be if you measured it. Its always greater than the distance you would measure with the same ruler in flat spacetime. (1-2M/r) represents the curvature.
