If you are going to be running new electric I would suggest that you run 10-3 with ground to each outlet. For the time being you can tape the ends of the red wire and ignore it. If you decide you need 220 at that outlet then use the red wire and move the black to a 220 breaker. The incremental cost of the larger gauge (10 v. 12 gauge) and the third wire (red) is minimal compared to the cost of running the wire not to mention the cost of adding a circuit later.

Also, I would suggest you consider 4×4 (4 inch square) extra deep metal boxes at each location. This would allow more room for wire. I absolute hate the situation where the wire is extra short and I have to fight to get wire off of an old receiptcal and onto a new one.
