Thankfully, someone made a series of videos about that. Thanks to the YouTube user doofer911 for creating this series of videos about runway markings and other rules of the road at airports. This is pretty basic stuff, but for a non-technical n00b like me, I thought it was pretty interesting. Here they are in sequence:
