Assuming that your feed/ankles don't swell at other times, my first guess is that it has something to do with the sstructure of the shoes you wear for running and lacing them up tightly.

If your feet/legs swell up on other occasions, see your physician.

I had this after a run once. The area was very tender and visibly swollen. I put ice on it that day, after a few days it went away and I didn't have a problem with it again. I'm not sure why it happened or why it hasn't happened since!

Agree with pp, if it's a repeat problem and you've ruled out shoes/lacing - get it checked out!
