Adding a receptacle in the basement

I need another receptacle in the basement. Instead of tapping into a box on the ceiling (unfinished basement) and then dropping from the ceiling along the basement wall in EMT, I want to just tap an existing box, then run EMT parallel to the floor to another box 10 feet further down the wall. I can't find anything that prohibits this, but was wondering if I was missing something. As far as I can tell, this is ok. Please let me know it it isn't (or is). Thanks.

(It will be GFCI protected, of course.)

Don't know of any problem with that. Should be fine.


Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.
