Weakness?: Seems like the muscles that bring the ankle up are somewhat weak and unable to hold the ankle up when running. I would seek medical evaluation to see what is the cause of the weakness.

Bracing: Your inverted and weak foot can be controlled with custom AFO (ankle foot orthotic) that can be fitted to your shoe.
