I'm not loving this change, and at first, I thought it was some sort of glitch. Almost like it was displaying backup text because the correct text wasn't loading.
I think one possible large improvement could be putting the description above the slug, to give that more prominence, and possibly de-emphasizing the slug where a description is present. Here are two tweaked versions I personally think would look better:
In this one, I reverse their positions and reduced the font size of the slug link from 16px to 14px. This de-emphasizes the slug and emphasizes the goal title, while still being clear that the slug is the link. This slug formatting could also be applied to goals without descriptions and wouldn't look bad.
In this version, I also changed the color of the slug from #3b3b3b to #888888. This gives it more of a "linky" feel, while emphasizing the description instead of the slug. On goals without descriptions, you could leave the color as #3b3b3b to show that the slug is both the link and the description of the goal.
